Sometimes you just need a drink that’s all warm and spicy. And alcoholic. And today’s been such a wet and rainy day, that I just naturally gravitated towards making this. Especially since it’s so easy, and only requires the most basic of ingredients (you know me by now… I’m fundamentally a lazy person).
Added bonus? This made the whole house smell incredible.
I’m thinking it’d be great to have something like this for a holiday party, serving it to your guests as they come in from the cold. What do you think? Have I swayed you away from hot chocolate?
Warm spiced apple cocktail
You will need (for 1 person):
1 1/2 cups / a mug-full of apple juice
1/2 shot glass of brandy
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
pinch of ginger
1. Mix all the ingredients together in a pan and bring to a simmer over a medium heat.
2. Let this simmer away for a few minutes then pour into a glass rimmed with sugar and cinnamon.
3. Enjoy on a cold, wintry evening. Fire optional.
